Dear Democracy Now! Visitor: We are an independent, ad-free daily news program that serves millions of viewers and listeners each month. Our show is special because we make it our priority to go where the silence is. We put a spotlight on corporate and government abuses of power and lift up the stories of ordinary people working to make change in extraordinary times. We do all of this with just a fraction of the budget and staff of a commercial news show. We do it without ads, corporate sponsorship or government funding. How is this possible? Only with your support. If every visitor to this site in December gave just $10 we could cover our basic operating costs for 2015. Pretty exciting, right? Please do your part today. It takes just a couple of minutes to make sure that Democracy Now! is there for you and everybody else in 2015.

The efforts to move non-commercial radio forward, including the struggles at Pacifica Radio, have made headlines over the last six months. But the movement to advance community radio is also a global one. At a conference this last weekend in Maine, people from grass-roots radio networks in the US held their fourth annual gathering, this time with guests from AMARC, an international coalition of community radio stations around the world.

Guest:

  • Frieda Werden, from WINGS (Women’s International News Gathering Service).
